    Julien’s Auction House reached a settlement with Michael Jackson’s production company on Tuesday, effectively nixing the intended auction of 2,000 Neverland Ranch items. While Julien’s will not be selling any of Jackson’s things, it will keep them on public display.

    “There was so much interest from so many of Jackson's fans,” read a joint statement from Jackson spokesman Dr. Tohme R. Tohme and auction organizer Darren Julien, “that instead of putting the items in the hands of private collectors, Dr. Tohme and Julien’s Auction House have made arrangements that will allow the collection to be shared with and enjoyed by Jackson's fans for many years to come.” “It’s been our hopes to resolve this in the beginning, when the lawsuit was filed,” Julien added, referring to the March suit that claimed Jackson didn’t authorize the auction. “It was in our best interest to resolve it. We continue to have great respect for Michael Jackson ... I guess you could call it the greatest auction that never happened.”
